From: Savory Simple
Noodle kugel can be prepared up to 48 hours in advance. Reheat it at 300 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until warm in the center. Alternately, you can prepare the recipe up to Step 5 (omitting the cinnamon sugar topping). Cover the casserole dish and refrigerate unbaked for up to 24 hours, then add the topping and bake it just before serving.
